Minecraft - Pocket Edition is all about building ridiculous architectural wonders by finding raw resources in the world and crafting them into handy tools and building materials.

You can turn some wood and stone into a hardy pickaxe, or melt sand down into glass. You can make bookshelves, or dye wool, or forge a golden apple, or cut rough cobblestone blocks into posh stone bricks.

In our handy charts below, and on the other pages, you can find out how to make everything in the world of Minecraft, and how to find the right materials.
